The fantastic first album from The Hi Fly Orchestra – a group we first dug on funky 45s, but who sound even better on this full length set! Unlike some of their contemporaries, who go for more of a deep funk groove, Hi Fly have a sound that's also equally jazzy – filled with hip riffs and references from 60s soul jazz and Latin, all served up with a sound that makes us feel like we've found some lost groovy gem on Prestige or Mercury Records! There's some especially great horn work on the group – sax, flute, and trombone – and the grooves run from hard bossa jazz to leaping modal numbers, all produced with just the right sound to make the album feel like a modern day classic! All instrumentation is live, and very well played – and titles include "Suinge Dela", "Bruno The Bear", "Madrugada Orange", "Mo Slo", "Belo Horizonte", and "Violet" – as well as a cover of Quincy Jones' "Soul Bossa Nova"!
